History


Redhall was built in 1907 for Sir Robert Gillespie, one of the proprietors of Gillespie Brothers and Anchor Flour Mills in Pyrmont, later becoming a Director of the Bank of NSW and CSR.
  • A prominent local identity, he poured his money and influence into Presbyterian schools and hospitals and also founded, endowed and chaired the first Council of Knox Grammar School in 1924.
  • The Gillespie Playing Fields in Hastings Road were purchased by Knox through generous donations from the Gillespie family and were named in his honour. Gillespie was also Chairman of PLC for 12 years as well as a major sponsor of theological hall facilities of St Andrew’s College, Sydney University.
  • One of Wahroonga’s original residences, the historic Redhall estate of the late transport and logistics industry boss John Strang, AO, and his widow Allison is for sale for only the second time since being built.

The 1907 Federation house was built for flour-miller and staunch Presbyterian Sir Robert Gillespie, with major improvements in the 1930s that included the elaborate sunken garden inspired by the English gardens of Gertrude Jeckyll that remains today.

  • After Sir Robert died in 1945, the property was transferred to his daughter Jean Winton Ward, who sold it to the Strangs in 1976 for $178,000.
  • Strang, who was chairman and owner of the Strang Tradex Group, died a year ago, and the property has been listed with Darren Curtis and Martin Ross, of Christie’s International, for more than $7.5 million.

21 Sandergrove Road Strathalbyn, SA (1926)


Diane Heitmann is an avid collector of 18th century furniture, and her Strathalbyn SA home is a true reflection of times gone by.
  • Purchased as a renovator in 1989, the three-bedroom property at 21 Sandergrove Rd, has since been lovingly restored with both Victorian and Edwardian influences clearly visible inside and out.

“One day we went out for a drive to Victor Harbor and saw this home. It was terribly run down but I thought it would make a good project.
  • “It was a good time in my life to have a project and it’s given me a lot of satisfaction over the years.”
  • The circa-1926 home now exudes a sense of grandeur without compromising its homely atmosphere.

They tend to have a lot of varnished timberwork.[1]
